University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine Review

University of the Incarnate Word Secondary Application

Overview

The University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine is a 4-year DO-granting program that welcomed its inaugural class in 2017. The School of Osteopathic Medicine was built to help meet the need for physicians in Southwest Texas and to meet the need for primary care physicians. The curriculum stresses self-directed learning and has community engagement built into the curriculum. Longitudinal Clinical Experience begins the first week of medical school and carries into phase 2. Students spend a half day in a healthcare setting each week. Beyond the classroom, the school has over twenty clubs to participate in, and you can start your own. Students also volunteer with Southside Independent School districts, San Antonio Housing Authority, Department of Health and Human Services, Texas Immunization Partnership, and Head Start.

Mission

UIWSOM’s mission is to empower all members of the medical education community to achieve academic, professional and personal success and develop a commitment to lifelong learning through excellence in learner–centered, patient-focused education, justice-based research and meaningful partnerships of osteopathic clinical service across the spectrum of undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education. The development and application of osteopathic principles of medicine across four years of physician training will promote culturally, linguistically, and community responsive care for all patients to enhance patient safety and improve patient outcomes.
